Taylor Anderson continues to deliver breathtaking adventure as he continues to raise the stakes for Captain Matt Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker in this latest outing in the Destroyermen Series.
Andre Norton, i suspect, would have loved Anderson's Destroyermen series. It's a taunt and white-knuckle gripping adventure set on an alternative Earth where two separate intelligent species evovled - who are at war with each other; and where survivors from parallel Earths have established footholds in this muddled world of different technologies and agendas. [Andre Norton also wrote of adventures in parallel dimensions - "Here Abide Monsters," "The Crossroads of Time," and "Android At Arms" to name a few.] She definitely would have loved the Lemur Cats of this world.
Despite having one a decisive victory against the Grik, killing their hive queen, and driving them out of their Celestial City; Captain Reddy and his allied forces are facing a renewed effort by the Blood Cardinals of the odd Aztec/Catholic Empire and by the Griks to box them in and defeat them. There is also the jarring arrival on the scene of a nation that is just more technically advanced then Reddy and his allies.
This particular novel reminds me of the battle of Midway the turning point of the Pacific war. A reader could take this as a pause in the broad scope of the big picture. However do not think that this is a weak novel. To me it seems Mr. Anderson has taken to enforce the horrors of war with the use of greater details and violent action on land and at sea. This book contains some of the best written action scenes I have read. Mr. Anderson has included the cold hard facts that one needs to "waste" soldiers to win wars. A lesson that is as old in war as time itself.
What would a one of these novels be with out a small twist and this has one or two that could change the direction of the war much like the atomic bomb changed WWII.
